What would cause my knee to hurt and cause pain up and down my leg? I injured it this summer. A tight muscle in the hip was the cause then.

In brief: Hip

Probably bursitis, most common hip problem, but if there is sensory change or pins and needles feelings could be minor nerve injury from injury to a skinnerve in the side of the leg(meralgia paresthetica) or a true disc related nerve pain.
Pressure on the injured thigh area will reproduce meralgia but not a disc problem and both should improve with rest, though a disc problem could be serious.
